Although lauded for their ability to outperform broader market indices, hedge funds’ “Best Ideas” do not excel relative to the rest of their portfolios, according to a study produced by Epsilon Asset Management, a quantitative investment firm, in collaboration with New York University.

Epsilon partners Faryan Amir-Ghassemi and Michael Perlow co-authored the report – “Hedge Fund Alpha and their Best Ideas” - with National Science Foundation award-winning assistant professor of finance and risk engineering Andrew Papanicolaou of NYU.
